among the biggest contributors to u.s. deficits. americans agree that government spending has to be cut, but the question is -- how? the focal point senior center is just around the corner from coral k. it offers services to the elderly. for example, on this monday, they can receive health advice from an expert. and then, they can join in the fund and bowl with a wii game console. members of the center pay annual dues of just $5. the rest of the center's funds comes from donations and public money. many here are concerned about the future. this man says romney does not understand the need. >> he wants to take away too much because he thinks they are all too lazy. may be some are, but there's a lot of people out there that need the assistance. i do not trust the man. he could be a very nice person as an individual, but as far as the government, no. >> opinion polls in florida are as close as the body games in coral k -- the bocci games in coral cay. many wealthy are not concerned about their benefits but are instead word about the economy. >> obama has had four years and really has n

from having a surplus to having a deficit. so i think there's -- i mean if you look at the tax policy center they basically said it's very hard to see evidence of exactly how raising taxes figures into all of this. >> several things. i was talking about president bush 41 in 1990 when they raised taxes, and it was supposed to help us reduce the deficit, in fact, congress just spent all the money that came in. when poll significances raise taxes, whether it's in california, we've seen the devastation there. illinois, we've seen the damage to that economy, maryland. when politicians raise taxes instead of cutting spending, you have lousy economic growth. those states, and you can compare either the reagan recovery, lower taxes, spending restraints, less regulation versus the very weak obama economy, wore where he did all the opposite things of reagan and got everything that an economist would tell you gets bad in an economy. let's compare state by state. california versus texas. illinois versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you put people out of work and you

you want to do something about the deficit. that's the single most popular proposal for doing something about the deficit would be to let the bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire. and yet that goes nowhere in washington. >> you know, there is an organized, powerful constituency for deregulation, for high-end tax cuts, for policies that are neglecting some of the serious middle class strains. and there just isn't anything of comparable size or power on the other side. and that has pulled washington way, you know, way toward the concerns of the most affluent, most privileged members of our society and led them to often neglect the real struggles that americans are facing during this economic crisis, struggles that are magnified versions of what americans have been going through for 25 years or so. >> there was a time when we were sure that a strong middle class was the backbone of a democracy. and there was a time, after the ii world war when i was a young man, when incomes actually grew slightly faster at the bottom and the middle than at the top, is that right? do your figures
